Thank you, this is a nice start!
Sorry for my late steping in, I was busy having sunbaths - it was May
holidays, and the Sun is rare guest here :)
I want to add more in the general/introduction part. The need and
advantage of the Unicode is not that it can handle more than 128
characters. It is that it allows unified handling of character set - no
more need for different charsets. Unicode also allows to have characters
from different alphabets in one document.
I want also to add few more links. Linux Unicode HOWTO (general part of
it) is very good introduction in Unicode, UTF-8, etc.
Markus Kuhn's UTF-8 and Unicode FAQ for Unix/Linux is well-known
Some more Unicode, charsets and fonts-related links:

Programmers don't die, they just GOSUB without RETURN.
